It did not fair well for me, however. As a person who lives in a flat county, I am no experienced rambler and even with a hiking stick, I was not full of confidence to walk this rugged landscape. I was following the group along the path of loose stones, when I suddenly lost my footing, causing me to slip and fall. I felt myself flying into the air momentarily. My legs forced to cross each other by the force of gravity and then I landed onto the side of my backside with a thump. I was badly bruised around my hip and thigh and it hurt just a little bit. But up on a mountain, even a minor injury such as bruise can be amplified. As I attempted to continue following the group and ramble over rough rocky terrain, my bruised area was becoming more and more unbearable and I was struggling to keep up.
